Director Message    

It is an exciting time to be at the Liquid Crystal Institute. The recent commemoration of our Golden Anniversary provided an excellent opportunity to celebrate the many discoveries and inventions made by our current and former colleagues. Their contributions made the LCI the academic world leader in this field. We have only begun to explore this fascinating phase of matter. I am confident that the discoveries and inventions that we, along with the next generation of LCI members, make will have an even more profound impact on basic and applied science and will lead to entirely new technologies and industries. I am honored to have been part of the first 50 years of the LCI and look forward to helping chart the course as we embrace our future.
